Much as we love Halloween and all its spooky goings on, we’re not so keen on heading out into the cold, dark night! Keep your tootsies warm on chilly nights with this pair of pumpkin-hued socks from Jane Burns – they make ideal house socks, too.
The glittering beaded skulls are particularly apt for the spooky time of year, bringing to mind Mexico’s vibrant Day of The Dead celebrations and adding a touch of Gothic glamour. They’re a perfect first project to try out this technique of adding beads, and, being more fun than scary, we suspect that the teenagers in your life will be fighting you for the chance to wear them!
These socks are designed for three UK shoe sizes - Small (size 1-4, ankle circ. 19cm), Medium (size 4-7, ankle circ 23cm), and large (size 8-11, ankle circ 28cm).
